County Issues Free Indigenous Tree Seedlings to Combat Climate Change

Trans Nzoia County distributes 5,000 indigenous tree seedlings to Motosiet and Cherangany-Suwerwa wards to combat climate change, with more distributions planned.

At least 5,000 assorted indigenous tree seedlings and exotic grafted Hass avocado species were distributed yesterday to Motosiet and Cherangany-Suwerwa wards, courtesy of the county government.

The Department of Water, Environment, Natural Resources, and Climate Change (WENRCC) spearheaded the exercise under the Financing Locally Led Climate Actions (FLLoCA) program.

Members of the Ward Climate Change Planning Committees (WCCPCs) from the respective wards were tasked with issuing the seedlings to the identified beneficiaries as per their earlier submitted proposals.

“This is just a nip in the bud! We have received the seedlings just as the rains are on, and this will catapult their growth as we endeavour to mitigate the effects of climate change,” said Jared Babu, the chairperson of the Cherangany-Suwerwa WCCPC.

Identified beneficiaries in Hospital and Waitaluk wards are set to receive their batch of approximately 5,000 assorted indigenous tree seedlings on Friday afternoon.

Key Points:

– 5,000 assorted indigenous tree seedlings and Hass avocado species distributed.

– Exercise spearheaded by WENRCC under the FLLoCA program.

– WCCPCs tasked with distribution to identified beneficiaries.

– Jared Babu, chairperson of Cherangany-Suwerwa WCCPC, emphasizes the timely distribution aligning with the rainy season.

– Additional 5,000 seedlings to be distributed to Hospital and Waitaluk wards.

This initiative represents a significant step towards combating climate change and promoting sustainable environmental practices in Trans Nzoia County.
